Bruce is recognized in Smart Business Cleveland Magazine’s “Smart 50 in NEO” as a top executive in the region for his ability to effectively build and lead successful organizations.

He trains, coaches, blogs and speaks nationally on these subjects, strengthening business relationships and getting more done with less stress. He has taught and consulted with thousands of people.

The author of On My Own, Recollections of an Unlikely CEO, Bruce grew up facing significant mental illness in his family. He spent his life learning to cope with and then to overcome these challenges. His first book is an honest and often humorous retelling of the boyhood adventures that led to the resiliency and resourcefulness that prepared him to lead others.
